Basketball Play - Arizona - Motion

Arizona - Motion

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

Sean Miller's Offensive sets are very creative, involve a lot of movement and do a good job changing sides of the floor. This Princeton type Motion Action invovles a lot of screening actions, incorporates two ball screens and forces the Defense to be aware of cutters and movements on the weak side. The opening action off the FT line elbow screen can yield a lob if the defender on the cutter gets hung up on the screen or is late trailing his man. Use also have the back screen Flex type cut for Trier which can get your 3 man a quick post-up or easy lay-up off the ball reversal step out from the 5 man. The play ends with either a SPNR or Step-up screen from the baseline. Well designed, easy to execute, but very hard to defend when utilizing a full shot clock. See More

Basketball Play - West Virginia - SPNP Action

West Virginia - SPNP Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

West Virigina likes to run this action throughout the game especially with the luxury of having Adrian a true "stretch" 4 in the game. Carter (PG) has the option of either taking the UCLA screen or stepping back for a shot or drive. 2 (SG) Miles Jr. can then curl off the step out screen from Adrian and has the option to immediately come back and screen-the-screener (option in this set as well). The exchange on the baseline makes the defense turn their heads to guard and with Ahmad (SF) a strong presence also on the block, Coach Bob Huggins set play gets a lot out of their personnel.

Basketball Play - Bucknell Early Offense

Bucknell Early Offense

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Bucknell is a team with players who can play multiple positions, basically going 4 out 1 in and running a hard cutting Early Offense set here. Their hard cuts force the defense to react quickly and the kick-out pass is the most dangerous option as their shooters do a good job moving in space. See More

Basketball Play - Bucknell Isolation Action

Bucknell Isolation Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

This simple set does not look like anything at first look, but what makes this isolation action so effective is the open space Thomas has to attack the basket off the back door cut from Mackenzie. The defense all goes to one side giving Thomas the chance to attack the paint, drop-off to the center or kick-out for the open 3 pt shot if the defense sags in. See More

MTSU - Blue Raider Slice

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Middle Tennessee State runs a variety of Offensive sets and they do such a good job reading the defense. Here is a signature action whereby using the back screen to clear a side for the ball screen where their guards can take advantage of their speed and attack or hit the big man Williams here for the 3 pt shot See More

Basketball Play - MTSU Transition Game

MTSU Transition Game

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

MTSU became the nations team last year after upsetting Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament. This year as a very underrated 12 seed, they are back once again with a veteran team & Coach who gets every last ounce of energy out of his team. MTSU is one of the best Teams I've seen this year at "reading" actions and reacting off them. Out of this Transition set, they're able to get two ball screen actions which in any defensive scheme, is very hard to guard. See More

Basketball Play - Minnesota Double Drag

Minnesota Double Drag

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

This DBL Drag action is well orchestrated as Mason is able to go right into a DHO with Coffey on the opposite side of the floor spreading the defense out. On ball reversal, the backdoor is opened up when Lynch relocates. Murphy with his ability to attack off the dribble drives the ball at the rim to the now open side of the floor. See More

Basketball Play - Northwestern Early Offense

Northwestern Early Offense

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

What makes Chris Collins Offensive schemes at Northwestern are the multiple screening & cutting actions in each series. The sets are designed to get action off the ball keeping the Defense occupied, forcing decisions in rotations which if to late, result in open shots. This set has all those options included and is one of the best sets I've seen thus far in the NCAA Tournament. See More

Basketball Play - Northwestern "Chest"

Northwestern "Chest"

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Chris Collins has done a tremendous job since his arrival at Northwestern, leading them this year to their 1st ever NCAA Tournament appearance. His Offense has been getting rave reviews this year from everyone who has the chance to watch his Team. This Dribble Weave action sets up to what looks like a double stagger action for Lindsey, but ends up with Lindsey finishing the play on the opposite side of the court with the dribble penetration. Law does a great job coming back off the single screen action when Lindsey cuts backdoor on the baseline. This Northwestern squad is "gritty" and plays with a lot of enthusiasm and effort on both sides of the court! See More

Vanderbilt - PNP Action With SPNR

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

With the advantage of having Luke Kornet in the line-up, Bryce Drew gets creative with this simple but effective FT line screen-the-screener action giving Kornet to step out and catch & shoot. The Commodores run a lot of misdirection and overload actions looking to create driving lanes and shooting options. This set has mutlple options and is suited to a team that can step their big man out to shoot the 3. See More

Arizona - Multiple Ball Screen Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

The Arizona Wildcats really do a tremendous job of moving their players around in their half court sets. Here is a multiple ball screen action which given the Defensive positioning can lead to a backdoor cut or open up the direct drive to the ring. If the Defense sags in on the penetration, the Cats have their shooters spotting up behind the arc ready for a kick-out pass. See More

Basketball Play - Arizona Transition PNR Post Action

Arizona Transition PNR Post Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

Sean Miller's Arizona Offense is very creative and provides his players with multiple cutting & scoring options. Out of this Transition action alone you have a DHO, Middle Ball Screen, and movement options that force the Defense into multiple rotations. At the end, the ability to have their 4 either step out to hit the jumper or post-up provides a finish to this action which is good for all levels of play. See More
